Paintings by Tala Madani

We are enjoying the paintings Iranian-American artist Tala Madani. Her portraits of Middle Eastern men are provocative and humorous commentaries on cultural and sexual identity.

The scenes in her work "play out fictive rituals of a deviant, distinctly female imagination: prayer gatherings twisted into homosexual orgies, birthday parties targeted for terrorist attack, and tattoos and body hair plucking construed as the latest in ultra-macho beauty makeovers." - Saatchi Gallery
